Cardiff City vs Leicester City (Team News)

Cardiff City host fellow play-off hopefuls Leicester City tonight looking to continue the recent good run of results.

The Bluebirds welcome back centre-back Anthony Gerrard after a calf injury, but with Darcy Blake in good form - Jones must decide whether to stick with Blake/Gyepes, or shift Blake into midfield.

A huge blow for Cardiff is the continued absence of defensive lynchpin Kevin McNaughton who has a thigh injury. The Scotsman has missed the last few games, and will be out for another week after taking longer to recover than expected.

Kelvin Etuhu made a welcome return against Palace and will again lead the Cardiff City linee with Jay Bothroyd serving the second of his two match ban.

Mark Hudson and Joe Ledley are progressing well after ankle and hip operations respectively but neither will be involved for another week at least. Miguel Comminges is out for the season, as is teenage striker Josh Magennis.


As is to be expected at this stage in the season, Leicester City also have their own injury problems to deal with. Prolific striker Matty Fryatt is back in training after suffering a broken jaw but will not feature against us. However, James Vaughan looks to have recovered from a hamstring problem and could start. Fellow loanee Jay Spearing is also hoping to make the starting XI.

Left-back Bruno Berner is not fully over a niggly calf injury so if Ryan McGivern again misses out- veteran defender Chris Powell will start.

Stephen Clemence, Alex Bruce and Aleksander Tunchev are long term absentees for the Foxes.


Bruno Bernar is a doubt, as is on loan striker James Vaughan but another loanee Jay Spearing is set to go straight into the Foxes side.
